    • One of the early settlers of Connecticut came from England to Boston (Massachusetts) in 1638 and to Windsor (Connecticut) in 1639. Died November 25, 1658, Aged 68.

      According to books about this family, Joseph is buried alongside his wife, Mary, on the family homestead in Windsor, Hartford, CT.
      Joseph LOOMIS & Mary WHITE came to America with their 8 children on the "SUSAN & ELLEN", one of the earliest ships to America. 11 Apr 1638 set sail from London, ENG. 17 Jul 1638 arrived in Boston. Moved to Windsor, CT in 1639. Findagrave shows 1,840 Loomis memorials, (2,560 LOOMIS memorials, 14 May, nearly a year later), 663 Lomax memorials, 274 memorials and 12 Lumis memorials, all can be traced to Joseph & Mary LOOMIS.

      Joseph's birthdate is actually unknown, but normally his wife's christening date is used as his birthdate. Also his deathdate is actually the date his will was read. The LOOMIS home is a National Landmark.
      One of the most remarkable facts in the history of the house on "The Islands" is that the title has come down through generation after generation by inheritance, and has never been transferred by deed. It is believed to be the oldest homestead now standing in the United States. According to Edward C. Marshall's "Ancestors of General Grant," the Loomis home is the oldest in America, with the exception of the Van Rensselaer homestead at Albany, N.Y. The latter place was a few years older, but it is said that this house has been moved away from Albany, leaving the Loomis homestead alone in its distinction.
